This Man Wants Your Books!!!

Thom Downing c. 1975

Every week we talk about the great items donated to the MV Big Flea.  But we rarely mention books.  And there’s a reason for that.

For the second year, the Friends of Duncan Library will host their annual spring book sale on April 24th, the same day as the MV Big Flea.  In addition to books, there will be prizes, amazing food PLUS entertainment for kids.  And not just any entertainment….we have the The Great Zucchini!

Best of all, the Book Sale & Kids Extravaganza will take place next to the MV Big Flea in the parking lot of Duncan Library at 2501 Commonwealth Avenue in Alexandria.

To make the sale a success we need books.  Lots of them!  According to event organizer Thom Downing, the annual sale is one of the library’s primary fundraising events.  “The more books we collect,” Thom said, “the more programs and activities we can deliver throughout the year.”

Book donations are being accepted any time at Duncan Library.  In addition to supporting the library, you receive a tax deduction for your donation AND you will be entered in a drawing to win a $20 gift certificate from Hard Times Cafe!  Please note we are unable to accept pre-2005 textbooks, damaged or extremely worn books, encyclopedias, catalogs or periodicals.
